Go Back To School With ViewSonic All-In-One PC TV


Widescreen Display Packs More Performance and Value Into Dorm Rooms

WALNUT, Calif. , Aug.15, 2006 – Perfect for small budgets and tight spaces, ViewSonic® Corporation’s 20-inch widescreen LCD TV provides “two for the price of one” value with its ability to support entertainment and PC applications. Priced under $500, the N2060w is an ideal solution for dorms, dens and recreational vehicles where watching television and movies needs to take place in the same space as Internet surfing, term-paper writing and instant messaging.

“Back-to-school spending is predicted to reach $17.6 billion this year1 and PCs and televisions are expected to top every freshman’s shopping list,” said Jeff Volpe, vice president of marketing, ViewSonic. “The multifunctional N2060w enables students and consumers alike to experience the digital world while saving time, money and space.”

Whether compiling Internet research, doing homework or catching up on soap operas, the N2060w provides vivid colors, crisp text and sharp life-like images with 450 nits of brightness (typ), a 1366x768 resolution and a 700:1 contrast ratio (typ). In addition, a fast 8 millisecond response time (typ) minimizes image lagging and ghosting to support motion video and high-speed gaming.

The display’s NTSC tuner, along with multiple connectivity features—including composite, component (YPbPr) and S-Video—enable simple connection to local television stations, PCs, cable, game consoles, DVD players and camcorders. Compatibility with HDTV (480i, 480p, 720p and 1080i) and progressive scan DVD players, along with an advanced processor with reverse 3:2 pull down and 3D motion adaptive comb filter, combine to deliver a consistent, high-quality digital visual experience.

Available now for an estimated street price of $499, the N2060w will be sold through authorized ViewSonic resellers, distributors and mail order. It is backed by a one-year limited warranty on parts, labor and backlight and is eligible for ViewSonic’s optional Express Exchange® program, which guarantees a replacement unit within 48 hours, where service is available. An optional two-year extended warranty is also available. ViewSonic offers toll-free technical support, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, excluding major U.S. holidays.
